Verducci's AL MVP Ballot
Rodriguez will more than likely take home the MVP award after carrying the Yankees on his back for part of the season and leading the majors in home runs (54) and RBIs (156).
He belted 35 home runs and had 117 RBIs despite limited opportunities to hit (111 BB).
Ordoñez claimed his first batting title with a .363 average and kept the Tigers in contention for much of the season.
Guerrero was the only player with more than 20 home runs and 100 RBIs for the AL West champion Angels.
Though often overlooked, this was his eighth season with 20 or more home runs. He also batted a career-high .338, up 61 points from last year.
Martinez led the Tribe in home runs (25), RBIs (114) and batting average (.301) as Cleveland qualified for the playoffs for the first time since 2001.
Ichiro led the league in hits with 238 and was second in batting average (.351). For most hitters, those numbers would represent a career year. For Ichiro, it's routine.
With timely hitting (.324, 21 HR, 120 RBIs) and solid defense, he has helped lead the Red Sox to their first AL East crown since 1995.
Sizemore has hit more than 20 home runs in three consecutive seasons, setting the tone for the Tribe at the top of the lineup.
Like Jimmy Rollins for the Phillies, Granderson did it all for Detroit: 38 doubles, 23 triples, 23 home runs and 26 steals (in 27 attempts). He ranked third in the league in extra-base hits with 84.
